A Cracking Deal For Chippindale Foods

A Cracking Deal For Chippindale Foods

Free range eggs from Chippindale Foods are to be distributed across the North of England after the company cracked a deal to supply the family-firm Booths Supermarkets. On a mission to engage with consumers to help the nation “enjoy eggs more” Chippindale Foods launched Free Rangers in 2013. Fronted by three ‘plucky birds’, Stef the Chef, Busy Lizzie and Jess the spring chicken, the brand shares recipes as well as hints and tips covering the value, convenience, versatility and health of eggs.

Following the listing with Booths Supermarkets, Chippindale Foods’ Free Rangers eggs will be available in packs of 10 in stores across Cumbria, Lancashire, Cheshire, Yorkshire and Greater Manchester.

The Free Rangers brand, which is also on sale nationwide in 480 Morrisons stores follows Chippindale Foods’ recent £4.2 million investment in its state-of-the-art 55,000 sq ft purpose-built production facility and specialist egg grading machine – the most advanced of its kind in the country.

Nick Chippindale, managing director of Chippindale Foods, says: “Over the next three years we plan to increase turnover by 50 percent and further expand our workforce. The success of Free Rangers and the listing with Booths will play a critical role within our growth strategy.”

Established in 1930 Chippindale Foods has evolved from a working farm in Harrogate to a state-of-the-art hub in Flaxby employing 40 people, with the capacity to handle over one million eggs per day.

The third generation family company specialises in egg grading, packing and distribution to both the food retail and food service sectors, including many of the UK’s leading supermarkets.
